Survey finds that small businesses ignore risks of data protection on mobile devices

"Mozy has released the results of a data protection survey which was produced by Mozy and independent market research firm Compass Partners. This found that an increasing number of professionals (80 percent) work remotely and rely on personal devices such as smartphones (63 percent), iPads (30 percent) and laptops (80 percent) to access company data."

Annie's take:

Mozy's survey is useful for a number of reasons. Though small businesses are the focus of the survey, I would guess the same level of carelessness applies to users from large businesses who are working remotely. Even so, the numbers warrant some training around this issue.
